Who is in the room for your dream studio session?
Um.... dream studio session? Man...
It’s entirely possible you may have already been there seeing as though you worked on MBDTF and I’m assuming were in the room for the making of Yeezus.
Let me think, ummm. I don’t know man.... I feel like me, ‘Ye and Pharrell... that’s an incredible session right there.
Has that happened yet?
Not yet, not yet but I believe it will!
We hope so! I’m thinking that maybe you three should just sit down and do a whole project yourselves like “Watch The Other Throne” or something like that. Just saying.
That would be INCREDIBLE.
How does it feel to be on the list of people who can say their track has been sampled by Kanye West? Hearing the vocal sample from Blocka on Guilt Trip, that song wouldn’t be the same song without that record’s energy.
Yea man, ya know we’ve been working in that whole creative space together is great. It’s a bit much to see how everything comes out and to see how it goes from where it starts to where ti ends. It always like a surprise because the songs never sound like they start. Ever. that’s how come I miss records like Paris like that would be my beat but because it doesn’t sound like the final product I have to use my imagination a little more. Ya know, and so it’s always like a surprise being in the studio with him.
What are your thoughts overall on Yeezus?
The Yeezus album to me? That’s Kanye telling everybody, “Do not even mention me in the same category as any of my 'peers’.” It’s hillarious, I love it. I love the arrogance, I love the energy, I love how he’s like clearing the pallete of music and seperating himself from every other artist in hip-hop that you may have called “his peer” at one point. No one will take those risks, no one will and that’s just the truth of the matter.
It kinda takes someone like Kanye West to do that, I think. He’s always so outside the box but close enough to where people kinda get it, but on this one he just put the blinders on left everyone else behind and just made whatever he wanted to.
We just want to give a huge thank you to Pusha T for taking the time to talk to us and keep your eyes peeled for My Name Is My Name dropping later this summer!
